Christening card


Good afternoon all - today I'm sharing my great nephew's christening card. The church is from a stamp set by Joanna Sheen. These are beautiful stamps and really need very little done to them. In this case I stamped the church and the words with versafine vintage sepia ink then matted and layered the image onto pale yellow and gold mirri card with a small gold brad in each corner. I put this image to the left of an A5 card and used a flourish stamp and fine detail gold embossing powder to embellish. This card fits very well for the My Time To Craft challenge and Srummy Stash Cafe where babies seem to be the order of the day this week. Thank you for coming to look.
